Life and philosophy interests me a lot. Sinful advice with a dash of soul.

There’s More to Happiness than Meets the Eye

Happy pictures on social media don’t translate to happiness in real life.

We only put the best pictures of ourselves in front of the world. The non-happy parts, we hide them, even outside of social media. 

We hide it all, to the best of our abilities, even from our best friends and loved ones.

The anger. The frustration. The feeling of hopelessness, despair, sadness, loneliness. The need to be something more; to do something more.

You’re Experiencing Less and Less as Time Passes By

Have you ever thought of how time passes by quickly as you age?

I always hear someone or the other remarking how this month passed by without much notice.

The Art of Doing ‘Nothing’ Effectively

Doing nothing shouldn’t take much effort, yet we fail to do it effectively all the time. I know what most of you might be thinking right now: I do nothing all the time. Lazing around in the bed and wasting time is something we do almost every day.

And yet there might be some who’ll think it’s logically impossible to do nothing, because in doing so, you’re actually doing something. While they do have a point, let’s not give much heed to these smart-asses 😉 and move on, to nothingness.… » click to continue reading “The Art of Doing ‘Nothing’ Effectively”
